Parmesan Garlic Butter Crushed Potatoes…

We love these potatoes, its like garlic bread had babies with roasted potatoes… if that was actually a thing.

These are a great side dish to so many meals, pork chops, steak, fish, chicken or anything you wish, you could even have them as a main meal alongside a salad for something nice and easy if you wish.

Feel free to use your favourite butters or spreads, you can also leave the cheese off if you don’t want it too or even swap it for a cheddar if you prefer.

Some recommended items from our kitchen for this dish…

  • Double sided dry and liquid measuring spoons for times when you need to measure both liquid and dry ingredients.
  • A decent set of knives for chopping, with a knife sharpener which is always handy.
  • Garlic crusher, we have had this one for a good while, easy to clean and can crush multiple cloves at once saving time.
  • Cheese grater with varying grater sizes.
